I just filled out application '10 PM Bedtime'. Here is my submission for your consideration:

PSN Username = Afflaq
Age = 31-35
Gender = Male
When did you start playing Destiny? = August 2015
How often do you play Destiny? = Everyday
How many characters do you have over 310 Light Level? = 3
After reading our recruitment post, what activity do you think 10 PM Bedtime primarily focuses on? = Raiding & PvE
Which class is your favorite in a raid setting and why? = I'm partial to my Titan as I've always been a tank in other mmos and Titan feels the closest to a protection based class. That being said, being able to be more aggressive with my warlock knowing I can self res is fun, and I love jumping on my hunter. The benefits of each class is subtle enough that the player really matters more than what they're playing.
Is there anything about the class(s) you play that you don't enjoy? = Warlock jumping sucks the most, but it's manageable.
What do you consider your strengths and weaknesses while playing your class(s)? = Reaction times and understanding of mechanics I suppose? Nothing in destiny thus far has seemed so complicated that it's been exceptionally difficult other than hoping rng doesn't pick people who can't jump
What attracted you to our particular clan? Where did you hear about us? = Reddit post is where I saw you. I come from a long wow background and have been looking for more folks like me. Seems like you guys are! I raided top 20 US during all of sunwell and some of ToTC, then quit during cataclysm as the game mostly just lost my interest.
Have you been in any other Destiny clans? = Nope
Have you ever been removed from a clan for misconduct? = Nope
What do you expect to gain from being in our clan? = Longer lifespan since I won't be raiding with randoms?
Do you utilize any outside resources related to Destiny? = The iPhone app if that counts? And /r/fireteams right now.
Are you missing any key exotic weapons or armor pieces that are useful in the current raid? = Not that I'm aware of
Do you min-max your character's stats? Which stats and gear perks do you focus on? = As much as I can within reason. I'm a fan of intellect and discipline for pve, and anything with firefly is my best friend. Machine gun/sniper perks etc. the usual.
Have you raided in any other games? Please list your raiding history in Destiny. = I played wow competitively from vanilla through tbc, we were #18 kil'jaeden kill through sunwell with pre-nerf Muru kills, realm first through all of the new naxx/3 drake sartharion/etc, and I was realm first druid on suramar before we xferred to malganis later. After we stopped raiding competitively I raided in a top guild in SWTOR, then the game died and I moved on to guild wars 2 in a top pve guild there. Real life got in the way for a while and then I tried wild star for a while and never could get into it too much. As far as destiny goes I've only played for a few months, but I've cleared KF HM weekly since hitting 40 and I've been doing it on all 3 toons weekly.
How do you deal with high pressure or stressful situations? = Doesn't bother me. I raid led for 5 years during my tenure in wow
How do you react to constructive feedback, be it negative or otherwise? = Fine with it. Everyone makes mistakes.
How are you with taking directions from someone in a leadership role? = I listen well. I don't always know the most and am aware of where I am on the chain. i spent 84 glorious wipes to Archimonde listening to another raid lead, so it doesn't bother me. I'll be the last one to give up almost always.
How do you react when you realize you're putting in more effort than the next guy in your fireteam? = In my experience thus far in destiny, my reaction would be "oh that's nothing new."
What irritates you about other people and how do you usually deal with them? = I'm over my raid nazi days, it takes a lot to frustrate me except for someone dying to the exact same mechanic repetitively and claiming they know more than you do. Light level elitists bug me too. Talent makes up for LL to an extent.
What do you do for a living? Will there be any conflicts with our raiding schedule of Tue/Wed 7-11? = I'm a principal architect for a software company, responsible for making sure that our sales group has the tools that they need to bring sales to closure. There shouldn't be any problems with the raid schedule unless my girlfriend breaks my ps4 controller or something
